The Curlew : Oxalys ensemble met Ian Bostridge Kamermuziekvereeniging

Together with the Belgian ensemble Oxalys, Bostridge makes a journey through the lovely landscapes of his native England with English music from the Belle Epoque by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Peter Warlock and Gustav Holst.

In the years around 1900, skirts rustled at balls in Europe and Mata Hari danced in Paris in the salons frequented by Oscar Wilde and Claude Debussy. In the music of conservative England, where everything always goes differently, the pleasant atmosphere of rural tranquility set the tone. Ian Bostridge has the ideal golden serrated timbre for the British romance of Gustav Holt and Ralph

Vaughan Williams. He also sings songs by the little-known Peter Warlock, who was inspired by music from the time of Queen Elisabeth I, but also embraced Debussy's harmonies.
